    Nothing is on it.... Couple of times Khan was on it in 2016, 2014 & 2013, one of them was on Mayweather undercard. Haye v chisora once and Fury v kiltchco once.

    What else does it show and who buys it when everyone you've heard of is on sky or BT?

    Premier Sports took over Boxnation and charge £9.99 per month for their channels and Boxnation. BT Sports subscribers still get it free as well.

    Big fights recently on that channel this year included Crawford v Brook and the great fight Berchelt v Valdez. Tony Yoka was also on there on Friday.

    With La Liga, Seria A, Dutch, Pork n Cheese and Indian Football, Rugby, Ice Hockey and Nascar as well as boxing - cracking value compared to a Dullian Whyte pay per pudding.

    Don't forget "The Next Big Thing" documentary (or was that on another network like ITV2? I don't think so) for David Price, which was also on YT and has since vanished from the face of the earth.

    Price vs Thompson 1 and 2 and Price vs Teper was on Boxnation. Legendary bouts.

    I've got virgin but not adding the £10 for Premier sports. So if I do I effectively get box nation too?? Thought box nation was a different number to prem 1 and 2.

    I ve re read it.

    So if I add either Premier sports (1&2) box nation will also be added. Or if I add box nation the prems will added too lol.

    Not bad for £10 more I suppose.

    I can't watch all the ****e that's already available without adding any more.

    I would quite like Boxnation though, if only to join in the moaning about it...

    My point is it seems there's nothing on box nation. .

    Sky has loads, bt getting in on action, ppv also.

    What's left?

    Don’t think BoxNation is included with Premier Sports on Virgin according to their website but that doesn’t matter. Any live boxing they have is also live on Premier as well, and in HD rather than the SD on BoxNation.

    Basically you are better off subscribing to Premier, even though you won’t get BoxNation.

    This is exactly right. Any boxing is on Premier also and, as previously said in HD. Obviously you miss out on all the ancient repeats that do the loop on BN but no ones watching them, are they ?

    Is Warren still involved? There have been long periods with zero boxing. And now only fights that would have minimal interest. It's obviously not going to compete with the likes of sky, bt or even channel 5 whatever it does though.

    I remember when boxnation first came out, was an amazing channel. Had some GREAT fights on there in the past. I cancelled my subscription 2-3 years ago. I can't ever hate on the channel tho, I've got great memories from it
